In His Light

But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. 

Thought for the day:  
“Be assured that there is no sin you have ever committed that the blood of Jesus Christ cannot cleanse.” 
 Billy Graham

When I was a young bride, my husband and I were just beginning, and money was one thing we didn’t have in abundance.  We received many wedding gifts but nothing to decorate our small cabin.  

My new in-laws started remodeling their home shortly after our wedding.  I was delighted to be gifted with their old dining room chandelier.  I polished it up, until the brass shone and the prisms sparkled.   It fit perfectly in our small dining area.  It’s light seemed so much brighter after I worked my magic with brasso.  The in-laws remodeling progressed, and we received many other gifts; but it was the chandelier that I liked  most.  That wonderful old light fixture shed warm light on many happy meals, and somehow; it made me feel secure and loved.

When I think about the tarnished brass and dusty prisms of my cherished chandelier before it was scrubbed clean, it reminds me that God takes our tarnished, dusty souls and cleanses them until we sparkle like brand new.  In His light we know we are loved and secure.

Prayer:  Most exalted Father, we come to you in deep humility, thanking you for the cleansing of our sins, and for always keeping us in your light - loved and secure.  In the Holy Name of
